Haiku #37

Will not fight nor kill

Anyone from family,

Uncivilized isn’t it?… // 1 //

The first chapter is Arjun Vishaad Yog. The great warrior Arjun has described his mental state and denies to fight against his own blood. He gives his own understanding and logic towards his outburst. He sees danger regarding the corrupting of the civilisation. He cried for the civilisation that the Sages have built with their efforts and blood. Hence it is “vishaad”.

Do we think about even about our families before arriving at any decision? Do we think about the effects of our action due to our decision? Do we fully understand the impacts of our decision? Hope we think and realise one day…

Post Script :

No specific shloks this time. Would try to write the history of the chapters. I know will not be able to do so in a single Haiku, so will write till my God guides and permits.

Also it will not be everyday as before, but yes will be consistent with my writings of the Haiku on Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta.


Am a teacher by profession. A student of History and international politics. Believe that Bhakti (Devotion) and Humanism can only save Humanity. Revere all creation. My thoughts are influenced by His Holiness Pandurang Shashtriji Athavale

    પહેલો અધ્યાય અર્જુન વિશદ યોગ છે. મહાન યોદ્ધા અર્જુને તેની માનસિક સ્થિતિનું વર્ણન કર્યું છે અને તે પોતાના લોહી સામે લડવાનો ઇનકાર કરે છે. તે તેના પ્રકોપ તરફ પોતાની સમજ અને તર્ક આપે છે. તે સંસ્કૃતિના ભ્રષ્ટાચારને લગતો ભય જુએ છે. તેમણે ઋષિમુનિઓએ તેમના પ્રયત્નો અને લોહીથી બનાવેલી સભ્યતા માટે રડ્યા. તેથી તે “વિષાદ” છે.

    શું આપણે કોઈ નિર્ણય પર પહોંચતા પહેલા અમારા પરિવારો વિશે પણ વિચાર કરીએ છીએ? શું આપણે આપણા નિર્ણયને લીધે આપણી ક્રિયાના પ્રભાવ વિશે વિચારીએ છીએ? શું આપણે આપણા નિર્ણયની અસરોને સંપૂર્ણ રીતે સમજીએ છીએ? આશા છે કે આપણે એક દિવસ વિચારીશું અને અનુભૂતિ કરીશું…

  2. Essence of this chapter is understanding the reason for grief and Vishad of Arjuna, as the opposing armies stand poised for battle, in the field of Kurukshetra, between the tolerant Pandavas and the ambitious unrighteous lustful Kauravas and their fraternity in the presence of shree krishnaaa – the eternal upholder of Dharma.
